    Pros

    I learned more in my time at Neo than I did in the same period of time at any other job in my experience. It was a fast-paced environment full of passionate people, and there were countless opportunities to succeed and progress. Being able to work with such a diverse group of people really made the job so rewarding and fulfilling. 10/10 would recommend!

    Cons

    People are often so busy with their work that they start to have a narrow perspective

    Pros

    One of the best things about working for Neo is the inspirational leadership team. I think a lot of companies tell you that they put there people first but NEO really do. They recognize talent within the business and find a way to nurture it.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours and pressure can be intense; but let's be honest that is agency life.
